Did the early wake up call thing this morning, but had a bit of a rough time. Cut my run short at 3 miles to take a couple deep breaths that were much needed this morning..
It was worth it just for a little sanity.
Taught a spin class this morning and then decided to revisit my old friends at the gym while I was there.
and Kelly and Michael for an easy 20 minutes.
I really like them.
Taught my BOSU class yesterday. Thought I’d experiment a little with a new move. I also made sure we did our one leg BOSU burpees again. Everyone was begging. Kidding. Kidding.
So here’s the move. One arm should press with leg extension.
Weight in one hand (phone in the other optional). Stand on one leg (same side you’re holding the weight), opposite leg lifted with knee bent.
Extend arm to ceiling for shoulder press while you extend your leg out in front. Hold for a couple seconds. Bring foot in and weight down and repeat.
Not an easy move to do on the BOSU. Definitely not easy to take a picture. On either side.
Ha. We just did a few on each side with a heavy weight. It was done very slowly.
This can be done on the ground also which will add that extra little core challenge by balancing on one foot. It’s still pretty darn difficult on the floor too.
So, I haven’t been eating kabocha that much lately. I kind of fell off that train after my stomach was sick the other week. Finally felt like having some again today and hey, wouldn’t you know I had one tucked away in the pantry.
It went down a little something like this.
Sweetener free roasted kabocha (I chilled it in the freezer after I roasted it), topped with a little SunButter and then some protein almond milk ice cream. Oh heck yes. If it’s my last one, it’s going down the right way.
Okay, so totally random, but ever since the whole Dean Karnazes fridge thing I’ve been eating canned tuna and salmon like crazy. Not in the bulk amount that it looks like he does, but I did just restock at Costco today.
I’m not a mayonnaise fan. Never have been, never will be. Mom use dot make tuna salad with mayonnaise all the time when we were kids.
I never know quite what to mix with canned tuna or salmon. It’s usually just some spices, salt, pepper, hot sauce and sometimes pickle relish.
Well, the other day I combined these three things and it was marvelous.
Trader Joe’s Hot and Sweet Mustard (also good on Hot and Sweet Salad Dressing), extra Spicy Mrs. Dash and canned salmon. I did not measure, just combined and mixed.
I had it on some whole grain bread the other day and then today before my kabocha madness I had it like this with some sriricha on top.
Classy style on a paper plate.
I might need some help though since my pantry now has an overload of canned salmon and tuna. You can only make this and/or grain free salmon pizza crust so many times. Ha.
Anyone have any good tuna or salmon recipes or ideas?
What’s your favorite way to eat it?
Or other fun things to do with that Hot and Sweet Trader Joe’s Mustard? I swear Heather said she puts it on blueberries. What?
